This delightful, small but impressive pin was made by William Hair Haseler. It was assayed as sterling silver in 1908 and bears beautiful enamel work.
William Hair Haseler (1821/22 – 1909) was a manufacturer of silver and gold jewellery and articles. In 1898 he formed a Partnership with Arthur Lasenby Liberty , the founder of the prestigious London department store. His items were sold in the store, some under the mark ‘Cymric’. Items by Haseler are sought after and you will find pieces on display in the Victoria and Albert museum in London.
The pin measures 1¼”(3.1cms) by 7/16”(1.2cms). It weighs 5.6 grams.
The design is stunning! There are two raised and straight lines on either side with enamelled triangles. The centre section is ornamented with chevrons. The lustrous enamel colours are lovely – dark blue, turquoise and soft green.
On the reverse is an old style c clip. It is marked with 'WHH' for William Hair Haseler. Beneath this are the English hallmarks - the anchor for the Birmingham assay office, the lion passant for sterling silver and the date letter 'i' for 1908.
This exquisite and very rare pin is in excellent antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
